Win­ter va­ca­tion a time for fun and learn­ing

Bhutan Times - - Home - Thin­ley Choda

Stu­dents ea­gerly waited af­ter a long pe­riod of study and tire­some sched­ule for a peace­ful va­ca­tion. Stu­dent hopes and waits for the en­tire year for win­ter va­ca­tion with a hope to ex­plore some­thing new and spend times with fam­i­lies and friends.

Par­ents in ru­ral ar­eas gets an op­por­tu­nity for their chil­dren to come back home and give an ad­di­tional help­ing hand for house­hold works and for ur­ban par­ents, it’s time for them to send their child in some good pro­grams so that they can learn some­thing new and get en­gage in some­thing pro­duc­tive.

Some stu­dents get en­gage in do­ing some tem­po­rary job and earn some money for the next se­mes­ter. Get­ting em­ployed is not nec­es­sary, any ac­tiv­ity that the stu­dents pur­sue dur­ing the break, be it read­ing, play­ing sport, danc­ing and singing should be also en­cour­aged.

A stu­dent of Lungten­zampa MSS, Dorji Tshe­wang said, “I am al­ways ex­cited and ea­gerly wait­ing for win­ter va­ca­tion for a long time, as dur­ing this time, I can help my par­ents as they have been al­ways busy help­ing me and other sib­lings leav­ing be­hind their busy sched­ule.”

This is an im­por­tant time for par­ents to spend time with their chil­dren in their care as this is a time where they can share and bond to­gether and give a good les­son for their chil­dren.

An­other stu­dent from Moth­ithang HSS, Tashi Wangmo said that “Win­ter va­ca­tion is a par­adise time for all the stu­dents, I was ea­gerly wait­ing for the va­ca­tion and I have al­ready plan for my va­ca­tion long time back to go and meet my grand­par­ents at Bumthang and visit Sikkim with other sib­lings and cousins for a time to spend my va­ca­tion.”

Par­ents must talk with their chil­dren, to find out what they plan to do. They have to share what they think to do and the par­ents should see that they do not in­volve in any­thing bad that in­flu­ence them from go­ing in wrong path.

Win­ter va­ca­tion is not al­ways a time for re­join­ing with their fam­i­lies and do­ing tem­po­rary job but for some it’s a time for go­ing and pur­su­ing their pas­sion, they are the group of stu­dents who are well in­ter­ested in sports more than any­thing.

An­other 19 years old stu­dent from Yangchen­phug HSS, Tshe­wang Norbu said, “Now I am fi­nally re­lax and pur­sue my an­other dream to play foot­ball with my friends be­sides read­ing a book, now I don’t have any pres­sure re­gard­ing my stud­ies so I can con­cen­trate on my pas­sion.”

Pe­rus­ing their pas­sion: Win­ter va­ca­tion is not al­ways a time for re­join­ing with their fam­i­lies and do­ing tem­po­rary job but for some it’s a time for go­ing and pur­su­ing their pas­sion for the stu­dents
